PDP President Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday said she was placed under house arrest because ‘according to admin the situation is far from normal in Kashmir.’
Taking to her Twitter handle, the former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir said, “GOI expresses concern for the rights of Afghan people but wilfully denies the same to Kashmiris. Ive been placed under house arrest today because according to admin the situation is far from normal in Kashmir. This exposes their fake claims of normalcy.”
The former BJP ally has been quite vocal against government of India for its handling of the death of Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani.
Following his death, authorities had put place strict restrictions in the valley. His family had alleged that the senior leader’s body was ‘desecrated’ a claim denied by the police.
